The current covid-19 pandemic is bringing an important new perspective to the value and use of innovative solutions such as the virtual coach. As a result, many European projects have to focus on testing solutions which include a covid-19 like situation over the course of the next year. vCare has not to change anything to its strategy as the virtual coach is also an excellent use case for a COVID-19 like situation. The project has now completed all its technical labs and is about to start its living Lab with the active involvement of end users.
